When people talk about Hungarian food, the first thing that comes to mind is their famous Hungarian Sausage. Magyar tries to expand that definition and introduce Filipinos to the world of Hungarian cuisine.
The ambiance is simple with artifact accents from Hungary. The glass wall fountain is a nice touch.
After the Hungarian sausage, most Filipinos like the goulash. Magyar’s version is a bit restrained though; we like Balkan Express’ goulash better. We like the way it is served in a hanging cauldron and heated to keep the soup warm.
This one is a screaming carbo – it is actually good but too heavy. Go easy on this one.
Filipinos love Hungarian sausage and this one will not disappoint. I like it specially with the sauerkraut.
Lamb Paprika (P325 +10% service charge). Lamb in white tomato sauce served with leoso and spaetzle on the side. Spaetzle (Hungarian Dumpling) is a type of noodles that is made of eggs, flour, and boiled salt water.
We love love this! We like the super tender meat with the springy sauce. We are also fans of the mini dumpling pasta. This is good to share for two.
Apple Strudel (P185 +10% service charge). This all time favorite is made special by wrapping cinnamon, apples and raisins inside the homemade traditional filo pastry and served with a scoop of vanilla ice cream!
This is just an ordinary crepe, in our opinion. Nothing differential on this one.
The cake itself is dry and it tastes like it has been stored in a freezer for a long time. I like the attempt to introduce Hungarian desserts in the market, but sorry we did not like this. Just skip the dessert.
I wish they become successful so that we can get our Hungarian dishes fix once in a while.
